    Tamar, I am unable to attend due to a work commitment; but may I ask a question? What is the $35/person charge covering?

      Hi Ryan. The classes are instructor led. I am an instructor so I don't make the prices, but the to my understanding they are a much less expensive way to get photography training, hands on practice, and networking with fellow photographers.
